REAL ESTATE SITUATED AT 459 ALBANY ST. AND RIOTING THROUGH TO 
HARRISON AVE. AND WHARF ON OPPOSITE SIDE OF ALBANY ST. 

-BOSTON. 

( See plans of land and power station and picture of buildings and wharf en the 
following pages. ) 

.About 315,323 square feet of land. Fronting en Albany St. and numbered 
439 on that thoroughfare is a three stcry brick building purchased of the Hinckley 
Locomotive Co. during 1689. 

The two lower stories of the front of this building was and is used for 
office purposes. The ground floor in the rear is used for a car equipment 
shop and for a small brass foundry. The second floor is used for a general 
store room for material and supplies, for an armature repairing shop, and for a 
pattern shop. The entire third floor is occupied by the company's general 
machine shop. 

In the rear of this building there is a small wooden building formerly used 
for a foundry but now used as a store room for power station parts. 

While these buildings have been erected for several years they are in very 
good condition for what they are now being used for. (See pictures on page =#10 .) 

Near the Harrison Ave. side of the property there is a small brich gate 
house nearly new, a frame carriage shed of no value, and a three story frame 
building now used for the storage of electric line material and tools. This 
building is in very bad condition and really has no value whatever. (See pic- 
tures on page #11 .) 

On the opposite side of the yard from this building there is an old brick 
building formerly used as a boiler shop by the Hinckley Co. and at present used 
as an auxiliary power station. This building is also in very bad condition 
and is not worth repairing. (See lower picture on page #12 .) 

Immediately in the rear of this building is the main or Central Power Station 
of the company. This is composed of a brick engine room, brick boiler house, 
and brick pump room with very powerful brick stack 252 feet high. 

These buildings were erected during 1890- 1893 inclusive, and the boiler 
house was extended during 1894. All these buildings are in excellent con- 
dition. (See upper picture on page #12 .) 

On the property there is also a small brick building equipped with apparatus 
the underground cables of the company. This building has been erect- 
recently. 

the water side of Albany St. there is a very well constructed wharf, part 
was built during 1890 and 1891 and was extended during 1895. This 
wharf is used almost exclusively for the landing and storage of coal and has poc- 
kets and coal handling machinery as shown in pictures on page #13 and. 14.

REAL ESTATE SITUATED ON WASHINGTON & FANEUIL STS. AND OAK SQ. 

BRIGHTON 

( See plans of land and car houses and pictures of buildings on the following; 

Pases) 



About 165,704 square feet of land. Facing on Washington st . and run- 
ning through to Faneuil St. is a new frame and brick car house erected during 
1895 and 1896, containing the usual offices, lobbies, etc. The wall next to 
the old car house and nearly all of the rear wall, including the triangular boiler 
room, are of brick construction, the balance of the building being frame, all in 
perfect condition. 

See pictures on page #46. 

Facing on Washington st. with side on Oak Sq. is a frame building (now used 
for storage of electric cars) composed of what was formerly a car house and a 
stable of the Cambridge R.R. Co. In 1889 the car house was altered over to 
adapt it for the use of electric cars, and during 1891 the stable was moved to 
the rear of the lot and an adjoining piece built between, to connect it with the 
altered car house, making one building of the whole. At the present time 
this building is in fair condition.

REAL ESTATE SITUATED ON MAIN, DORRANCE, WEST AND BEACHAM STS. 



CHARLESTON.

About 154,650 square feet of land. Situated on the corner of Main and 
Dorrance Sts. is a large brick car house (except front which is of wooden con- 
struction)containing waiting rooms, lobbies, shops, etc. This building was 
erected during 1876 for a car house by the Middlesex R.R. and was altered over 
to adapt it for the use of electric cars during 1891 and 1892, and is now in 
excellent condition. (See pictures on page #65 .) 

Next to this building on Main St. is a piece of property now owned by the 
U.S. Biscuit CO.. 

Next to this property there is an old frame building in very poor condition 
now used for the storage of cars, and adjoining this in the rear and running 
through to Beacham St. is an old frame stable with accommodations for fifty-seven 
horses. Both of these buildings are in such poor condition as to be practical- 
ly worthless. (See pictures on page #66 . ) 

There was formerly another car house fronting on Main St. but this has been 
removed, with the exception of the front wall which is still standing as shown 
in pictures on page #67 .) 

On the southeast corner of Main and Beacham Sts. there is a two story brick 
building formerly used as an entrance to shops in the rear, but altered during 1896 
into quarters for the Emergency Crew for this division. 

On the ground floor there are accormtodat ions for two wagons and two horses, 
and on the second floor there are two sleeping rooms, a sitting room, a bath 
room, and a loft for provender, etc. This building is in excellent condition. 
(See upper picture on page #68 .) 

In the rear of this building there are two adjoining brick, pitch roofed 
buildings formerly used by the Middlesex R. R. Co. as repair and paint shops, 
and running at right angle with the rear of these buildings, with side on West 
St., there is a one story flat roof brick building formerly used by the Middlesex 
R. R. Co. for a blacksmith's shop, and still used for the same purpose by the 
West End St. Ry. Co.. All three of these buildings are in good repair. (See 
lower picture on page #68 .) 

On West St. adjoining the blacksmith shop is a small frame shed in very 
poor condition.

JREAL ESTATE SITUATED ON COLUMBUS AVE. AND TREMONT ST. 

ROXBURY 

( See plans of land and car house and pictures of buildings on the following 

p ages. ) " 



About 54,378 square feet of land on which there are a number of old build- 
ings formerly the property of the Metropolitan R.R.Co. 

Facing on Tremont St. there is a two and a half story brick, pitch roofed 
building, the ground floor of which is used for storing of electric cars, as 
is also the ground floor of the building immediately adjoining it in the rear. 

The second story of the first of these named buildings is now used for the 
storage of sleighs, and the second story of the other building has accommo- 
dations for fifty-five horses; both of these buildings have large vacant lofts, 

Adjoining the second building, in the rear, ia a large stable with some di- 
lapidated stalls on the first floor and stalls for eighty-two horses on the 
floor above with large hay and grain loft in third story. 

In the rear of this building is another brick stable in the same condition 
on the first floor, and with stalls for forty-eight horses above. This 
building has no loft. 

On the extreme end of the lot there is a frame building formerly usea for 
a shop but now used for a carriage wash room for the stable 

Adjoining the front car house is a small one story frame waiting room with 
a room in the rear used by the employes who run cars from this place. 

The interiors of all these buildings are in very bad shape and the build- 
ings taken as a whole have very little value. 



NOTE.- The small corner of land shown on the plan is controlled by 
this company under a lease, from the Rcxbury Grammar School, which expires 
in 1914. A lump sum was given when this lease went into effect and no 
rental has since been paid. This let contains 937 square feet.

into an electric car house in 1892, and at the present time is in excellent 
condition. The second floor of the brick car house is used for the 
storage of cars without motors, and the rear part of the wooden car house 
is arranged for the storage of old horse cars only.

(See pl an of land and picture of buildings o n the following pages.) 

About 40,971 square feet of land. Situated with front on Walnut St. 
and side on Morss Ave. with back on Juniper St. is an old frame building 
formerly used by the Metropolitan R. R. Co. for a car house but now let for 
a riding academy. This building is in very poor condition and has no 
value. (See upper picture on page # 192 .) Facing on Juniper St., 
and connected on one end with the previous named building, there is a brick 
stable, part of which has a second story for hay and grain loft. This 
building also belonged to the Metropolitan R. R. Co. and sadly needs repairs, 
(See middle picture on page # 192 .) 

On Walnut St. there is an old colonial dwelling house containing eight 
rooms. This building is in such wretched condition that it is liable 
to fall to pieces at any time. (See lower picture on page # 192 .)

ner as to adapt them for use as an electric car house. (See lower picture on

building is used for carriage and wagon purposes, while the rear has accommodations 
for fifty-four horses. In this building is also situated the quarters of 
the Emergency crew of this division, with stable accommodations on the ground 
floor and with two sleeping rooms, a sitting room, and a bath room above. This 
building is in fair condition. (See second and third pictures on page #236. ) 

In the rear of these buildings are some storage sheds in rather poor con-* 
dition. (See fourth picture on page #236 •) 

Pacing on Bennett St. is an old tenement house in such poor condition that 
it has been condemned by the building inspector of the City, being unfit for oc- 
cupancy and not worth repairing. 

In the rear of this building is another double tenement house, each half of 
which contains two apartments, one of four and one of five rooms. This build- 
ing is in rather poor condition. (See lower picture on page #236 .)

( See plans of land and car houses and picture of buildings on the follcwing pages , ) 

About 34,451 square feet of land. On the corner of School, Summer, and Avon 
streets is a frame car house formerly the property of the Charles River street 
Railway Co. and altered over by the West End Street Railway Co. during 1893 in 
such a manner as to make it available for the use of electric cars. At the 
same time the car house situated at the other end of the lot was remodeled and 
the yard between this building and the stable was roofed over and made a building 
for the use of cars and a small brick boiler room and blacksmith shop was built 
in the rear. These buildings are in as good condition as could be expected 
under the circumstances, but are not much more than sheds for electric cars. 

Between these two car houses is a large frame stable used by the older com- 
panies for stabling eighty-seven horses on the ground floor and with large loft 
above. 

The Beard of Health of the city of Somerville will not now allow this latter 
building to be used for stable purposes, and while it is in fair condition it has 
no value for the purpose for which it was built.
